Abundance of Choice

This Vienna Instruments Collection is a truly magnificent profusion of percussion.  Apart from all standard percussion instruments and Performances it contains production-ready instruments, processed with sought-after high-end studio equipment and put into the right perspective with multi-sampled convolution reverb from Vienna Symphonic Library’s MIR PRO and its RoomPack 1 (“Vienna Konzerthaus”). The basic percussion instruments (timpani, snare and bass drum, tambourine, suspended cymbals, a-due cymbals, glockenspiel, triangle, xylophone, tubular bells, tam-tam and concert toms) thus are not only available as “dry” samples (with minimal reverb of the Silent Stage), but also with the reverb of the world-famous Vienna Konzerthaus in various stage positions.

“Vienna Symphonic Library has been the center of my orchestral sample library for several years now. I go to their library first every time I create an orchestral template when I´m beginning each film I score. And my demos sound great. I recommend this library to anybody getting into film scoring.”

Vienna Instruments require the ViennaKey!
This USB protection device by eLicenser (by Steinberg, formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in any collection, it is a separate item you have to get additionally. So you’ll have to order at least one ViennaKey with your first purchase. It will be put inside the shopping basket automatically but can be deleted if not required. Customers who order the complete SYMPHONIC CUBE will get one ViennaKey for free (not shown in the basket). If you already own another eLicenser USB protection device (e.g., from Steinberg or Arturia), you can use it for the VIENNA INSTRUMENTS, too. Each dongle can store up to 100 product licenses.
Additionally an internet connection on any computer is required to authorize a VSL product.
